Cold Weather Gloves

For a November trip from NC to PA, WVA, KY, VA, I decided to replace my ancient cold weather gloves. I took a pair of BMW's All Around Gloves and was extremely satisfied with them. I experienced temps from the low 20s all the way up to the mid 60s and they, combined with heated grips when needed, were fine. One day of the trip was 100% pouring rain and, with the gloves gauntlets strapped tight inside my rainsuit sleeves, my hands stay perfectly dry. For $75, these are great products.

My wife got herself a pair of BMW winter gloves and loves them. She doesn't have heated grips and only small hand protectors on her DR200SE, but the gloves keep her hands warm.

Edit: I bought a pair of Frank Thomas gloves that are a piece of crap. My hands get as cold in my summer gloves as in those. Okay, they were a third of the price compared to the BMW my wife has and I needed something right then, but I would never ever buy them again.

Snow gloves

For the past couple of years, I have had great success with Outdoor Research gloves (Outdoor Research M's Arete Gloves). They are waterproof, comfortable, and allow for plenty of movement. Usually go through a pair a year here in Washington state.

How about the Held Warm'n'Dry gloves ? They seem to fit the bill although I have not tried them. They are a bit expensive ($199) but you said money is no object. I love my Held Steve gloves and it seems these are similarly well made except for being warmer and waterproof. And with knuckle armor. Anybody tried them ?

+1 on hippo hands. 10-15 deg 20 mi. ride to work was no problem. Frost on the bridges and roads was another problem. A little $$$$ but a good winter acc. And with the thinner gloves I can feel the controls .

Well check on Mixxmix promo code I also have them and using them for more than a year. They are too warm and comfortable and can use in both summers and winters.

This thread is from 2012. While an old thread it's still relevant. Altho I'm not sure the items here are still in production. I've found the Aerostich rain over gloves and a simple pair of summer gloves along with the handlebar heat set to low is very comfortable down into the 30's with or without rain.
